what does the GPS abbreviation mean?

I chose to write about the philosophy of freedom.
It came out to 154 words. Is it ok if I leave it like that?
I am sure they will not count the words.


umm, i wrote about GPS

I talked with some people about the Yale 250-word essay, and they told me something I want to share with you all. It is not by chance that Yale has such a requirement. For Yale admissions, the 250-word essay is a great opportunity to check if you can intelligently write to the point. This is a very important skill to have for law school, and especially for the practice of law. I really like going on and on about a topic, but i guess it is never to late to learn new skills! What do you think about the 250-word requirement?
